This subject deserves thoughtfulness, IMO! And I think you're right that this kind of ... sort of passive-aggressive self-condemnation is not very helpful. I sort of have to examine my own tendencies to do things like that sometimes >//>

I think there's a lot to discuss here, at any rate ... I haven't talked about it a lot here on Dreamwidth, but I've sort of spent a few months educating myself about RPG history and subculture, and the reasons why a lot of traditionalists and alt-right types are into games like 40k and D&D. And the influence they've had on these games.

I don't want to invalidate the good experiences a lot of people have had, and continue to have, with these games. I've gotten a lot out of both! I'm just a lot more cautious than I used to be ... and considering this problem has also helped me find other games that I like a lot more.

Does this help? I apologize if I made you defensive; I can change the post if you like! If I haven't addressed every point you brought up, it's because I'm on a bus at the moment >/_o
